    And....I saved the best for last!
    The sign said "Buy 1 Atlas SD-35, for $50.00, get the second one free."
    "OK" I asked the guy..."Whats wrong with them?"
    "Nothing"...He told me."I'm just tired of lugging them all over the country. They are heavy."
    I grabbed two undecs. Paid for the one and booked away from his booth before he changed his mind. Didn't know til I got home and was checking everything out...One was an SDP-35, the other was a SD-35 High nose. What a find!
    Price...$50.00 for one. Original price...$140.00 each.
    Wooooo Hooooooo!
    Oh yeah...They were still sealed in the box.Hadn't been opened. Actually....Everything(Except the animals) were still sealed.
